NAIL ART TUTORIAL: GIVE ‘EM WHIPLASH

We love Nicki Minaj, she came on the scene and literally exploded. Her music and fashion style are so different from anything else that’s been seen. We haven’t been this excited about a collaboration since the Katy Perry line. The OPI x Nicki Minaj collection is such a great mix of feminine and edgy colours. This line was set to launch in January, but our local Trade Secrets gave us a call at the end of last week & we rushed right over! Side note: Trade Secrets has the best customer service, they noticed we were always in there and offered to put us on a call list, so nice!

Step 1: After applying base coat, paint nails with two coats of OPI – Fly. We are OBSESSED with this colour – a creamy teal, with prominent blue undertones. We went through our whole collection and couldn’t find any dupe for it. Out of the whole Nicki Minaj collection, we highly recommend Fly the most. It’s such a great colour to go through every season.

Step 2: This colour was so nice so we wanted to do a more subtle nail art – insert Save Me. This glitter is much different from any glitter we can think of. If you follow our blog, you know how much we love glitter – we try to find an excuse to put it on everything. This silver glitter has long grains in silver, teal, pink and orange/gold and is such a pretty glitter top coat! We opted for a zig-zag type design, to (sort-of) match Nicki’s crazy style. Using a nail art brush, paint a diagonal line to the left side of the nail, bring it back to the right side and then bring to a point, like a lightning bolt.

Step 3: We tried putting a black liner around the design, but it totally took away from the glitter. Finish the design with a top coat to seal in glitter.

If you’re a Nicki fan or a fellow polish addict, this is defintely a collection you should check out. The line is unique, and filled with colours not really in current rotation. Our top favourites were Fly & Save Me (hence the above), show us your favourite colour/nail art from the Nicki Minaj OPI line on twitter or facebook!
